The Red Lipped Alligator Lizard, Abronia lythrochila, inhabits montane pine forest in the state of Chiapas in Mexico, where it spends most of its time in the tree canopy. Their native range is very small but they are common within it however they are threatened with habitat loss. 
This lizard reaches a total length of 15–25 centimeters, but half of this length is tail. The tail is prehensile and they have a very prehistoric alligator like appearance. They are greyish green in colour sometimes with irregular blotches, they can be distinguished from most other available Abronia species by horn like scales on the side of the head. The scales around the mouth are usually red; hence the common name. They feed mainly on insects and need a varied diet and high levels of UVB lighting, an additional source of high output LEDs would also be beneficial. They require a hot spot of around 28 to 30c but need to be able to escape this to around 20c ambient. They also need spraying 2 or 3 times per day.
